Will

Guardian

Guardian in a will

Person who has been named in a will or appointed by a judge to take care of minor children or a special-needs adult. Naming one person as the executor and another as the guardian can make sense in some cases if the guardian is not well equipped to handle financial matters. The court is not required to honor the guardian named in a will, but usually does unless there is evidence that the individual is incapable of handling the role. (Read Special Trusts For Special Needs for more information on how to ensure your loved ones with special needs are taken care of.)
